Rural Locum Education Assistance Program
Rural LEAP provides financial assistance to urban GPs who undertake emergency medicine training and commit to a 4 week (or 20 working days) paid general practice locum placement in a rural location within a 2 year period.
Eligible participants are able to access and obtain a one off-financial incentive to undertake emergency medicine training up to $6,000.
Rural LEAP commenced in February 2010 and is an element of the Rural Health Workforce Strategy.
